Question
How select a site to properly install the Flo-Tote 3 Sensor?
Summary
Proper site selection for the Flo-Tote 3 sensor.
Answer

The Flo-Tote 3 sensor should not be placed near a vertical drop in the channel. Locate the sensor at least five times the pipe diameter
(or maximum level) upstream from the vertical drop, or ten times the pipe diameter downstream. The same location criteria
should be used if there is a baffle (or other obstruction) in the channel.

Locate the sensor away from any pipe junctions. If the flow in both pipes coming in to the junction is approximately equal, place
the sensor at least five times the pipe diameter (or maximum level) upstream, or ten times the pipe diameter downstream from
the junction. Use the pipe diameter (or max. level) of the pipe in which the sensor is installed. If the flow in one pipe or channel
is significantly higher than the other, increase the distance from the junction (if the sensor is to be installed in the channel with
the lower flow).
